  1. Log in to Interania docs (click Sign In in the upper-right corner). 
  2. On the Lexicon page, click the (green) Create a new entry button. 
  3. In the new page that appears, enter a title for the topic (the word or phrase that you're defining). 
  4. Now add content!
    1. Add a concise definition.
    2. Link to related terms, if applicable: use the Link option in the editing menu or press Command-K. Save the page when prompted, then search for the term to link to.

  3. Find the term you created a new entry for. Select the word or phrase and click Link (or Command-K) to open the Link dialog.
  4. Select your page from the list and click Save Link.
  5. You're back in the Edit window. Click Save in the upper-left (or press Command-S).
